“One of our most famous tourist attractions is the 1.25 meters tall sculpture of The Little Mermaid at Langelinie Pier. When looking at her, if can seem strange why such a small sculpture is important for us. The sculpture from 1913 is based on the fairy tale of the famous Danish writer, Hans Christian Andersen (HCA) and the sculpture of The Little Mermaid was made by Edvard Eriksen after the Danish brewer Carl Jacobsen (founder of Carlsberg Beer) fell in love with the mermaid character in a ballet based on HCA’s story. The Little Mermaid statue is free to access, and it is a nice walk from Østerport Station to Langelinie (Langeliniekaj 2, 2100 København). If you use the boardwalk (Bryggebroen) to Dybbølsbro Station, you have 4 stops on the S-Train to Østerport. Or you can hop on a canal cruise as most of them sail by The Little Mermaid.”
